Due to a delay in credential processing, TSA is extending the expiration date for Hazardous Material Endorsement holders whose credentials are due to expire by December 31, 2022. Drivers that would qualify for the exemption have already passed the threat assessment.
TSA released a statement saying “This exemption allows state licensing agencies to permit those with expiring, or recently expired hazardous material endorsements to remain fully authorized by TSA to transport hazardous materials during this time period. The commercial truck drivers impacted by this decision are subject to recurrent vetting during the exemption period, and their businesses will continue to provide safe and efficient transportation.”
